MSHome? Or workgroup.
Sometimes I see mshome and sometimes I see workgroup.
What happen anyway if the workgroup changes? I can still see files.

The default workgroup after installation is
MSHOME in Windows XP Home, but
WORKGROUP in Windows XP Pro (and newer releases such as Vista).
If you access to a Windows share (or SAMBA server) via hostname, workgroup does not have an impact. However, if you use broadcast discovery (in simpler terms, if you navigate to All Network node in Network in Windows) hosts are grouped according to their workgroups. In this way you can put associated hosts into a single workgroup.
